SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Fukanzazengi LII

| No Comments


In traditional Ch'an/Zen painting, such as these persimmons by Mu Chi ... open space is as crucial as ink lines.

Do not presume that empty space is empty ...

.... that silence is silent.

... gotsugotsu to shite zajô shite, kono fushiryôtei o shiryô se yo. Fushiryôtei ikanga shiryô sen. Hishiryô. Kore sunawachi zazen no yôjutsu nari.

Sitting in balance in the mountain-still state, "Think the concrete state of not thinking." "How can the state of not thinking be thought?" "It is different from thinking." This is the secret of sitting-Zen. [NISHIJIMA]

… settle into steady, immovable sitting. Think of not thinking. Not thinking-what kind of thinking is that? Nonthinking. This is the essential art of zazen. [SZTP]
